Oh Crap!

Post by Bill Caroselli » Fri Mar 26, 2004 10:06 pm

Our IT department just bought me (Yeah right!) a bunch of network storage
space. They acquired a bunch of "Net Disks" from Ximeta.

It's a cute idea. They are hard drives that just plug into an ethernet hub,
not a computer. Any other computer on the network can then access them.

Any computer that's running their driver, that is. And guess what?
That don't seem to have a QNX6 driver.

It claims to use "NDAS Technology". Does anyone know if this is
proprietary (as I assume it is) or an open standard? And if it's open,
is there a QNX6 driver for it?

This is kind of like opening your present on Christmas morning only to find
a year's supply of spinich.

Use one Windows Box to access all the NetDisks, and share it with QNX6
through fs-cifs.
This seems what they suggested in their FAQ.
